Jim Ross On Cody vs. Okada At NJPW’s G1 Special For The IWGP Heavyweight Championship


The commentator for the NJPW G1 Special, Jim Ross, recently appeared on Busted Open Radio and provided his thoughts on the upcoming NJPW G1 Special-event. (July 1st-2nd). This is New Japan’s first live-televised event in the United States during a “normal” time of day & is shaping up to be a great follow up from their “Dominion” event.

Here’s what JR had to say on Cody vs. Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship:


“I think it’s a good booking, Cody needs this match, he needs to show everybody exactly where he is since leaving the WWE, because I believe, that eventually, Cody will make a triumphant return to WWE, a much better performer and business man than he was when he left and he will make a major impact. But right now, it’s a great place to see where he is in that evolution. Whether I’m right or I’m wrong, this is a big match for him and of course, Okada got that pressure that he seemingly now has to have a five star like match everyone outing and that’s damn hard to do.”
